Each week, college football players turn in outstanding performances that deserve a bit of a spotlight. Whether it's quarterbacks picking apart a defense with clinical precision or running backs shouldering the load, there's always something. And this week was no exception, with plenty of players turning in eye-opening performances and compiling monster stats.
Below are some of the best quarterback, running back and wide receiver performances of the week.
Kellen Moore, Boise State: Moore played a video game again this week, carving up the Toledo defense on Thursday night to the tune of 455 yards and five touchdowns. Moore missed on just 10 passes, completing 32 of 42, one of which was an interception.
Seth Doege, Texas Tech: Against New Mexico, Doege put on a passing clinic, completing a jaw-dropping 40 of 44 passes for 401 yards and five touchdowns. He didn't throw an interception and was about as close to perfect as a quarterback could be in the Red Raiders' 59-13 win.
B.J. Daniels, South Florida: Daniels connected on 21 of 31 passes for 382 yards and four touchdowns in the Bulls' rout of FAMU on Saturday. This may not seem like a huge deal when compared to the rest of the quarterbacks here, but consider that Daniels did it in just a little over a half. He finished the first 30 minutes with 355 yards passing, played one series in the third, then watched the rest of the game from the sideline.
Henry Josey, Missouri: Yes, it was against Western Illinois*, but Josey broke off big run after big run and led all the nation in rushing. He carried the ball just 14 times, picking up 263 yards and three touchdowns for the Tigers. His average? An insane 18.8 yards per carry.
*Awesome nickname alert: Leathernecks
Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina: Navy gave South Carolina quite the scare, but the Gamecocks made it out alive thanks to Lattimore. The sophomore running back scored all three of the Gamecocks' touchdowns, picking up 246 yards on 36 carries, as well. Workhorse? You bet.
LaMichael James, Oregon: James beat up poor Missouri State, carrying the ball 12 times for 204 yards and three touchdowns. Ho-hum, just another day at the office for the Oregon running back, who seems to be bouncing back just fine from a tough matchup against LSU.
Marquess Wilson, Washington State: The bubble finally burst for Washington State as the Cougars fell on the road at San Diego State. But Wilson was his usual self, catching six passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns -- one of which came from 80 yards out and the other of which was a 78-yard score.
Jordan White, Western Michigan: Against Central Michigan, White caught 13 passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns, on 19- and eight-yard receptions. He accounted for almost exactly half of the Broncos receiving yards in a 44-14 win.
Jalen Saunders, Fresno State: Saunders caught just three passes, but boy did he make them count, picking up 154 yards and two touchdowns. In the first quarter, he scored from 86 yards out to open the game, then added a 52 yard touchdown. The other catch? A paltry 16-yarder. Slacker.
